Rise & Shine
According to this rooster, it’s time to wake up. Better do so now, so as not to get on the wrong side of this ornery, disruptive character!
Now that you’re wide awake, you can visit my shop at Redbubble to discover some cool gifts and apparel items featuring this comical design. I’ll start the coffee…hope to see you soon!
Enjoy playing the great sport of frisbee disc golf along side this fun blue bird character, taking a shot with his putter. Discover many cool items – tee shirts, stickers, mugs, masks, etc. – available in my Tee Public shop. Thanks for shopping!
Enjoy my digital rendition of a Macaw Parrot, a beautiful and brilliantly colored bird indigenous to the Central and South American rain forests. There are 17 different species of macaws in the wild…this one is digital from Photoshop and made to look like glass. See more in my shops at Pixels, Society 6, Redbubble and Cafepress.
Thanks for visiting!
Vintage summer photograph of a seagull resting on a rock, in Lake Superior – Marquette, Michigan. Prints available.
As I approached Richland Creek, I spotted this large Grey Heron standing attentive on a boulder, approximately 40-feet away, and used my zoom lens to get a closer shot. It was apparent, judging from water marks on the rock (see lower right corner) that this bird had been in and out of the water more than once. Though aware of my proximity, the Grey Herron remained focused, waiting and watching for an unsuspecting fish, until an opportunity presented itself – lunch! If you’d like an opportunity to enjoy a print, several options are available in my gallery at Fine Art America – check it out!
Random photographs from Knoxville, TN: an old, abandoned barn located near a commercial district, and a muddy pond with wildlife.
I was hiking along rocks near the water at Twin Falls, in Tennessee, when I spotted this Egret in the distance. Or, perhaps I should say – it spotted me!
These birds, like the Heron, are good fliers, but not so quick to become airborne. As such, they pay close attention to their surroundings, monitoring closely for any incursions within their space which might necessitate flight.
Not wanting to create a disturbance by walking too close, I turned to ascend a 50′ stairway leading away to the parking area. At the top, I saw that the Egret continued to assess my albeit diminished proximity. Even after walking a short distance, and then returning, I remained under the watchful eye of the Egret!
Note: these photographs were taken using a zoom lens, at a distance farther than it appears.
Might this be the beginning of another island in a chain of islands? Or, perhaps something more…the hatching of a prehistoric Pterodactyl? Whatever the case, these waters appear dangerous and not suitable for swimming! As such, guests are invited to discover some fun gifts and/or apparel merchandise in my galleries:
Hope to see you soon!
